Miwok 100K - May 7, 2016
Registration for the 2016 Miwok 100K lottery will be open December 1 - 10, 2015, with the entrant list posted on December 12. Registration is $190 total, including UltraSignup and credit card fees. Your credit card will not be charged unless you get in. If you don't get in through the lottery, race sponsor Salomon will be raffling two Miwok spots in February, and Tribute to the Trails calendar awards a spot to one lucky 2016 calendar owner in January (details posted at www.miwok100k.com on December 15).
2015 Runners who missed the Randall or Bolinas Ridge cutoffs, or threw in the towel knowing they wouldn't make the last-minute-park-imposed cutoff, will bypass the lottery this year. They must register for the race by December 10.
Runners will have 15 1/2 hours to complete the course, with cutoffs adjusted appropriately; we're working on providing an early start for those who need 16 hours.
A big thanks to everyone who participated in the 2015 Miwok 100K. On behalf of all the volunteers, spectators and sponsors, I'd like to congratulate you on meeting the challenge, or giving a great effort in the attempt. The weather was perfect for a long run, the wildflowers were out in abundance, along with a mysterious bagpiper at Cardiac, and a pirate near the Pelican Inn. We had some top-notch competition and quite a few personal success stories, and will endeavor to keep exactly this course for years to come.
The Miwok 100K course is one of the most iconic in the country, with spectacular views of San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge, Pirates' Cove, Mt. Tamalpais, Muir Beach, the Redwoods, and the Point Reyes National Seashore. The course follows fire roads and single-track trails with less than one mile of paved road. You'll get your hills in, with almost 12,000' elevation gain. Please see the website - www.miwok100k.com - for full details.
Local time: 8:59 PM
The race starts and finishes in the town of Stinson Beach and many racers are able to stroll to the start (make your reservations early) and take a dip in the ocean afterwards.
